Bella Bond was a beautiful two year old, murdered by her mother’s boyfriend. She came to be known as Baby Doe after her remains were found in a trash bag in Boston Harbor in June.
Her mother and boyfriend are now facing charges in Bella’s death. The boyfriend for murder, the mother for being an accessory after the fact in concealing the crime.
Horrific as the crime was, it pales in comparison to the murders of thousands of American troops and hundreds of thousands of Iraqis.
Those responsible are not facing charges. Nor are those who were accessories after the fact in those war crimes.
Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice, et al, are as guilty of murder as is the guy who killed Bella Bond.
And Obama is as complicit in those crimes as is Bella’s mother in covering up her little girl’s murder.
Failing to prosecute war crimes is nothing less than being an accessory after the fact in their commission.
Obama appears to be following the tradition of giving war crimes passes to former presidents. Truman, Johnson, and Nixon were never prosecuted, and Obama would likely not want future presidents to closely inquire into his ordering the murders of civilians by drone strikes.
